After having built over 15 prototypes in search of the perfect linear BEC am I finally finished. I’m proud to present my two new products. The small Magnetic BEC is for DLG gliders and the large is for F3F, F3B and F3J model gliders. They are designed super slim to fit in a small fuselage. They are both out in flight test right now and will be ready for sale in about 3-6 weeks.
Here are a few specification highlights
Only 4mm thick including heatsink
Ultra low stand-by current 5µA
Output current burst >30A
Ultra low voltage drop for safety
The biggest reason for this update is a new trading/payment system. It is improved in many ways. We hope it will be a success and you will like it. If there are any problems please do not hesitate to contact us.
I’m developing a Magnetic BEC. It is a combination of my Magnetic Switch and a BEC “Linear regulator”. The idea is, that it should follow the specification from my switch ie. 7A continuous and more than 20A in peak. The first prototype is complet and testing just began.
There has for many months been some debate about the use of gyros in F3F competitions.
I do not think the gyros should be used in our competitions. Therefore I have made this sticker. The stickers is 4cm in diameter and easy to remove.
Order 16 stickers and pay only for the shipping. Sold Out
Now all Magnetic Switchs comes with a sticker. Put it on the fuselage just above the Switch. With this sticker it will be easy to locate the switch and turn the plane on and off. The sticker is made of a ultra thin material, to keep aerodynamic drag to a minimum. Size is 14 x 43 mm and thickness is approximately 0.05 mm
I constantly look for better components for my switches. I want them to stay as the best and most stable on the market. I found a German quality cable from www.muldentalelektronik.de It is my opinion that they make some of the best cables in the world. All Magnetic Switchs will now be made with this cables. In the long term it may lead to a price increase, but for now the price will remain the same.
Many users and potential buyers of the magnetic switch is afraid of losing the magnet.
And it is also understandable, the magnet is the key. Without it, it’s hard to switch on and off the plane.
This is why I created the Smart Magnet Holder. This solution can be clipped to your jacket or pants. The magnet is mounted on 75cm line with auto roll up.
That way you’ll always know where your magnet is.
I have been looking on the temperature specifications of the components I use in the Magnetic Switch. It turns out that I’ve been very careful when I determine the operating temperature range for the Switch (-10C to +50C). Because all the components can handle down to minus 40 degrees Celsius. The new operating temperature range is (-40C to +50C). So if there is someone who wants to go out and fly in extreme cold. They should not worry about the functionality of my magnetic switch. Remember to bring warm clothes.
The magnetic switch is now in mass production. The quality is top notch.
The Magnetic Switch worked perfectly and the test pilots were very pleased with it. I had 14 switches with me, and sold all in under an hour. I’ll bring more next time.
Here is a picture of the testpilots, myself included.
First test flight on a lovely spring morning. The test went pretty good.
